Unification of Nonlinear Filtering in the Context of Binary Logical Calculus, Part I: Binary Filters

  • Chapter
Mathematical Nonlinear Image Processing

Abstract

The mathematical structure of nonlinear filtering is expressed in the context of binary logic. This first part of a two-part study concerns the binary setting. Operator properties, such as antiextensivity and idempotence, are expressed in finite logical expressions, as are the Matheron representation for morphological filters and its extension to translation-invariant operators, thereby giving simplicity to both operational properties and representations and also exposing the manner in which logic methods can be used for filter design and analysis. The second part of the study treats gray-scale filters.
